  • Never been this blue
    Never knew the meaning of a heartache
    But then again, I've never lost at love before

    Somewhere down the road
    Maybe all these years will find some meaning
    I just can't think about it now, or live 'em out anymore

    Stand tall, don't you fall oh, don't go and do something foolish
    You're feeling it like everyone, it's silly human pride
    Stand tall, don't you fall. don't go do something you'll regret later
    You're feeling it like everyone, it's silly human pride

    Never lasted so long
    Or through so much - or through so many
    I just can't believe you could throw it all away

    Sometimes late at night
    When there's nothing here except my old piano
    I'd almost give my hands to make you see my way

    Stand tall, don't you fall oh, don't go and do something foolish
    You're feeling it like everyone, it's silly human pride;
    You got me down on my knees for ya, mama
    Stand tall, don't you fall. don't go do something you'll regret later
    You're feeling it like everyone, it's silly human pride Writer/s: CHAD VACCARINO, IAN AXEL
